Comments

You hit the nail on the head, Maura. Kilgore is all about the elites and the exclusives, while Kaine is about helping the regular people.

I just can't believe the Republicans have the gall to call themselves the Main Street Americans. Gah!

This contrast between the Kaine and Kilgore events should be used in a TV add or a flyer or something that has wide distribution. Time to start preaching to everybody, not just to the choir.

Lola

I mean 'TV ad' of course. Can't stand typos.

This election will be very close. It is absolutely imperative that we all help by registering Democratic voters, volunteering the time we can with the camppaign, and doing GOTV early.
Especially important is to get name recognition for Leslie Byrne and for Creigh Deeds in the parts of the state where they are not known well.
Those things we did for Howard Dean to get name recognition can work here.

Great contrast Maura! The voters need to wake up and think about who really is capable of looking after their interests.

Doug in Mount Vernon

Hey Maura--awesome comparison, excellent distinction.

These people can only parade and charade for so long before people begin to see the truth.

I was able to attend Tim Kaine's fundraiser in Arlington last week. You can rest assured that my time was much better spent there making some new contacts than the dog and pony show-style gathering in McLean. Congressman Jim Moran got the festivities started and Senator Barack Obama inspired us before introducing Tim.

Here's a snip from the Post that says it all...

"The event had more of the feel of a rally than the usual midsummer fundraiser."

Good article, Maura. This race is a study in contrasts. BTW, Kilgore trusts neither Virginians nor Americans. And we don't trust him. He's all about changing our state and nation to something we don't even recognize anymore.

>>>than the dog and pony show-style gathering in McLean. Congressman Jim Moran got the festivities started<<<

Perhaps, but remember that the hosts of that dog-and-pony show for Kilgore, Republican fundraisers Dwight and Martha Schar, donated the legal maximum of $4000 to Jim Moran in the 2004 primary. (cf. http://www.opensecrets.org/indivs/search.asp?NumOfThou=0&txtName=Schar&txtState=%28all+states%29&txtZip=22101&txtEmploy=&txtCand=&txt2006=Y&txt2004=Y&Order=N)

Moran is playing both sides of the fence here. He goes to the event in Arlington and gives a rousing speech that people who don't know any better find inspiring. Yet behind the scenes, that same Jim Moran goes to the organizers of that Kilgore dog-and-pony show and solicits $4000 from them for himself.

Why do the Kilgore supporters give money to Moran? Any ideas?
